Today has mainly been doing housework!! Over the last few weeks this has slipped somewhat as been busy with work but it does get to me that the house is in a state, the bedroom had become a floor-robe with washing daily being transferred from the bed to the floor each night with the plan of putting it away in the morning and then that plan going out of the window.

The dirty dishes in the kitchen had been piling up to point I’d run out of clean plates and cutlery and space on the worktops to do anything!

I’m not an ultra tidy person but I do like a bit of order, I don’t know about you but for me I do a massive house tidy and clean and then for a few weeks I keep on top of it, doing a little each day, then slowly this daily practice slips and it turns into chaos and then I have days like today when I have to spend all day tidying and cleaning.

Sometimes I do find cleaning and tidying quite cathartic and today was no different, in fact spending time in each of the rooms in my house made me realise that even though the house does need a bit of a refresh and a few DIY jobs doing it’s a lovely house and most of all it’s MY house, my castle, my safety and I’ve worked my butt off to make it what it is.

It made me realise that I’ve fallen into a mindset of seeing the negative of every aspect my life rather than seeing the good stuff, so time to continue building the good stuff!

I'm 40 something gal living in the beautiful county of Lincolnshire, England. I run my own business which is a rollercoaster of good times and bad times but it is what makes life interesting. I'm a self-confessed foodie, which some people might think is bordering an obsession, but a good obsession I would say. I am a fully qualified food technologist, nutritionist and personal trainer and use my skills and knowledge to keep striving to better myself in all areas of my life. Despite being dyslexic I love reading both fiction and non-fiction books and usually have four or five on the go at any one time. I enjoy keeping myself fit and healthy by regular visits to the gym as well as enjoying open water swimming and sometimes I'm brave enough to swim without a wetsuit. This blog is all about my life and adventures.
